Port Klang and Klang town is very popular as Food Haven for locals and dynamic entreprenuer business.

In maritime terms, Port Klang actually consists of three distinct ports. The port nearest to Port Klang town is known as the South Port. There is also a North Port and the newly developed Westport located on an island just off the coast of Port Klang.
